Jam Cookies

A few weeks ago, my Friends from Le Creuset asked me if I wanted to collaborate with them and Bonne Maman, they are a French brand of jam, so I obviously said yes, I’ve been wanting to try those jams for a while, But I couldn’t find them here at Villahermosa, and suddenly, one afternoon, I heard a knock on the door and it is the messenger guy with a he box full of jams, and so I wondered what would I do with that much jam hahaha, but oh well, they are so good, I’m at heaven, they are really good, and I’m not a huge fan of jams, but this ones are so sweet, you know they are made from real fruits, they are REALLY good.

This recipe I bring you today is for cookies with 4 red fruits, it’s Delicious, they are butter cookies that melt in your mouth with that touch of jam, they are to die for, but from pleasure, my husband eats zero jams, and he devoured them, so I assume he liked them.

This cookie recipe reminds me of cookies that were sold in Venezuela a long time ago, I don’t know if they still sell them, they were called “reinitas”, they were soooo good, well this recipe are kind of like those, the y melt in your mouth, like if they were crumble cookies and the jam adds adds an explotion of flavor, they are good for kids lunch, just don’t give them to many, they are not exactly low in calories.

You can make this cookies and add any other jam you like, they are still going to be good, you can also change the jam flavor if you want, try making them and let me know how they went, if you changed the jam flavor and you liked it, let me know to try it myself! And do you have a favourite cookie recipe? Let me know which one bellow on the comments.

Hi Vanessa! I just wanted to tell you that my 3 year old son and I tried out your recipe, and it was the BEST butter cookie recipe EVER! I think the almonds did the trick. I hope more people will try it out! I used blueberry preserves that my MIL had made, and the jam-filled butter cookies turned out AWESOME :) A BIG thank you! Will not be trying out anymore butter cookies recipes, I've discovered the ultimate butter cookie recipe :)))
